 The Sister Pact by Stacie Ramey || Release date: November 2015

A suicide pact was supposed to keep them together, but a broken promise tore them apart

Allie is devastated when her sister Leah commits suicide—and not just because she misses her. The two teens made a suicide pact so that they'd always be together, and Allie can't understand why she was left behind.

Drugs seem to be the only thing that help Allie with her grief, and it just so happens that her dealer might be the only one who knows why Leah did what she did. As Allie struggles to uncover the truth, she must come to terms with the fact that she wasn't as close to her sister as she thought…and that some secrets are best left buried.


First & Then by Emma Mills || Release date: October 2015

Devon Tennyson wouldn't change a thing. She's happy watching Friday night games from the bleachers, silently crushing on best friend Cas, and blissfully ignoring the future after high school. But the universe has other plans. It delivers Devon's cousin Foster, an unrepentant social outlier with a surprising talent for football, and the obnoxiously superior and maddeningly attractive star running back, Ezra, right where she doesn't want them first into her P.E. class and then into every other aspect of her life.

Pride and Prejudice meets Friday Night Lights in this contemporary novel about falling in love with the unexpected boy, with a new brother, and with yourself.


In Real Life by Jessica Love || Release date: March 2016

Hannah Cho and Nick Cooper have been best friends since 8th grade. They talk for hours on the phone, regularly shower each other with presents, and know everything there is to know about one another.

There's just one problem: Hannah and Nick have never actually met.

Hannah has spent her entire life doing what she's supposed to, but when her senior year spring break plans get ruined by a rule-breaker, she decides to break a rule or two herself. She impulsively decides to road trip to Vegas, her older sister and BFF in tow, to surprise Nick and finally declare her more-than-friend feelings for him.

Hannah's romantic gesture backfires when she gets to Vegas and meets Nick's girlfriend, whom he failed to mention. And it turns out his relationship status isn't the only thing he's been lying to her about. Hannah knows the real Nick can't be that different from the online Nick she knows and loves, but now she only has one night in Sin City to figure out what her feelings for Nick really are, all while discovering how life can change when you break the rules every now and then.


Romancing the Dark in the City of Light by Ann Jacobus|| Release date: Oct. 2015

A troubled teen, living in Paris, is torn between two boys, one of whom encourages her to embrace life, while the other—dark, dangerous, and attractive—urges her to embrace her fatal flaws.

Haunting and beautifully written, with a sharp and distinctive voice that could belong only to this character, Romancing the Dark in the City of Light is an unforgettable young adult novel.

Summer Barnes just moved to Paris to repeat her senior year of high school. After being kicked out of four boarding schools, she has to get on track or she risks losing her hefty inheritance. Summer is convinced that meeting the right guy will solve everything. She meets two. Moony, a classmate, is recovering against all odds from a serious car accident, and he encourages Summer to embrace life despite how hard it can be to make it through even one day. But when Summer meets Kurt, a hot, mysterious older man who she just can't shake, he leads her through the creepy underbelly of the city-and way out of her depth.

When Summer's behavior manages to alienate everyone, even Moony, she's forced to decide if a life so difficult is worth living. With an ending that'll surprise even the most seasoned reader, Romancing the Dark in the City of Light is an unputdownable and utterly compelling novel.


The Love That Split the World by Emily Henry || Release date: January 2016

Natalie Cleary must risk her future and leap blindly into a vast unknown for the chance to build a new world with the boy she loves. 

Natalie’s last summer in her small Kentucky hometown is off to a magical start…until she starts seeing the “wrong things.” They’re just momentary glimpses at first—her front door is red instead of its usual green, there’s a pre-school where the garden store should be. But then her whole town disappears for hours, fading away into rolling hills and grazing buffalo, and Nat knows something isn’t right.

That’s when she gets a visit from the kind but mysterious apparition she calls “Grandmother,” who tells her: “You have three months to save him.” The next night, under the stadium lights of the high school football field, she meets a beautiful boy named Beau, and it’s as if time just stops and nothing exists. Nothing, except Natalie and Beau.

Emily Henry’s stunning debut novel is Friday Night Lights meets The Time Traveler’s Wife, and perfectly captures those bittersweet months after high school, when we dream not only of the future, but of all the roads and paths we’ve left untaken.


Take the Fall by Emily Hainsworth || Release date: Feb. 2016


Fear grips the residents of Hidden Falls the night Sonia Feldman and her best friend, Gretchen Meyer, are attacked in the woods. Sonia was lucky to escape with her life, but Gretchen’s body is discovered at the bottom of a waterfall. Beautiful, popular, and seemingly untouchable, Gretchen can’t be gone. Even as Sonia struggles with guilt and confusion over having survived, the whole town is looking to her for information…could she have seen something that will lead the police to the killer?

At the top of the list of suspects is Gretchen’s ex-boyfriend—and Sonia’s longtime enemy—Marcus Perez. So when Marcus comes to Sonia for help clearing his name, she agrees, hoping to find evidence the police need to prove he’s the killer. But as Gretchen’s many secrets emerge and the suspects add up, Sonia feels less sure of Marcus’s involvement, and more afraid for herself. Could Marcus, the artist, the screwup, the boy she might be falling for have attacked her? Killed her best friend? And if it wasn’t him in the woods that night…who could it have been?

    Yes! I am loving the covers for Collide, Romancing in the Dark, and First & Then. So excited to read those books! I think First & Then is my favorite cover of the simple, but eye-catching at the same time!

  3. I'm not particularly crazy about When We Collided, but I'm excited to read the book. I like The Sister Pact's cover, and it sounds really interesting, too. Thanks for sharing.

  4. It seems like the new wave of books are really getting typographic! I love all the new font/type design their using!

    My TBR pile has just gotten bigger!!! Thank you so much for the suggestions!!!

  6. Yes - love that cover and I'm very excited to read that one!

  7. I wasn't crazy about the cover for When We Collided either at first - but it's grown on me! :)

  8. I adore pretty much all of those books. I'm so bad at coveting pretty covers but it also helps in finding good books I find. I love the cover to Viper Wine (not a new release but one of the best covers that's caught my eye recently) and the story sounds equally as intriguing.

    Sundays and Ink |

  9. So many pretty covers popping up lately! I love the cover for Love that Split the World. Seems like this years covers are all so colorful!

  10. Will you be reviewing any summer books for people over, oh, 21? Especially people who do not only read fluff on holiday? It's suddenly all young adult (euphemism for adolescent) around here...

  11. That's exactly what I was thinking. I actually really like it. ;)

  12. The covers are beautiful. I always feel bad choosing a book by it's cover because we're technically taught never to do that, but they'er so pretty!

  13. Since this is a predominantly YA book blog you will find that things get all a little "adolescent" around here quite a lot of the time!

  14. Oh I'm sorry, I found your blog when I was looking up books line Gone Girl and The Girl on the Train, thriller type things.There were quite a few good ones for a while. Didn't realise it was actually a YA blog. Thanks for the heads-up, I'll move on, thanks!

  15. I think I missed a lot of these cover reveals, so thanks for keeping me in the loop Leanna, I have no clue which cover I love best, as they're all so pretty! :)
